Tired of the traditional Christmas Tree. Learn how to make this easy Modern farmhouse DIY wood Christmas tree shelves. Add holiday cheer to any space, big or small, with a versatile minimalist tree that was a breeze to make from 2x4's.
Wonder why we decided to make this DIY Wood Christmas Tree Shelves? Since I have had my own place, I have always put up slim trees. I'm just fascinated by pencil-thin simple trees. I am not sure why I don’t like “traditional” wide trees- maybe it’s because I am just overwhelmed by how much you have to add to a big tree to make it look decent-Who knows?.
This year we have a huge great room and lots of space so I wanted more than just one pencil tree since it would just disappear in this big space. So I started looking for ideas on how to have a bigger tree without having a tree at all! So I came across some wooden wall tree shelves and We decided to supersize it to fit our current home.
The tree would match our modern Farmhouse decor and will serve as a display for my Christmas houses mini collection. What also made this wooden tree idea so appealing was that it could be done for under $15!
